Shortcake Quilt

 This was a quilt-along I participated in last fall. We followed the Cluck Cluck Sew pattern "Shortcake", and I did mine out of citrusy colors from my stash. This pattern comes together very quickly, especially if you use Jelly Roll. (I obviously didn't since I used various different lines.)

 Since I don't have a little girl at my house, I was going to put this one in my shop, but my sweet Mama snagged it before I could even do so. She loves quilts, but hates quilting, so we have a rather mutually beneficial relationship :) I assumed she was going to save it for the next granddaughter that came along, but was thrilled to discover that she placed it on a brand new Jenny Lind crib in a spare room in her house, along with another quilt made by me. She's now ready for visiting grandbabies of either gender, and in the cutest way, if I do say so myself!

Flying Geese Quilt

I made a LOT of things for Christmas 2014, but probably my favorite was this quilt for my oldest son's bed. The best part is how much he loves it! Seriously, bedtime has been easier because he's eager to jump in and snuggle it. There is nothing more that a quilter mom heart could ask for!
